Associate Senior Lecturer
School of Health and Welfare
Health economist, PhD
Ever since I was first employed 25 years ago as a health economist at Stockholm county council (now Region Stockholm) I have acknowledged, and sought to fulfil, the need of economic evaluations to enable wise decisions. I firmly endorse the idea of scarce societal resources, which forces us to make choices in order to obtain the highest possible societal welfare and individual wellbeing.
My research during early years focused on economic evaluations of public health, at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. More recently my research interest widened into policy implications of health economic evaluations, as health economist at the HTA (health technology assessment) agency SBU. Work tasks and research activities at the agency were systematic reviews of health economic evaluations including reporting findings to decision-makers at local, regional and national levels. I continue my involvement in HTA as convenor of the Cochrane-Campbell Economic Methods Group.
At Halmstad university my research activities revolve around the decision-maker need of economic evaluations that reflect the societal value of healthcare measures.
I am an experienced lecturer, with teaching experiences at all university levels -from bachelor to doctoral levels. My subjects are primarily health economics and economic evaluation, with themes ranging from basics of cost-effectiveness analysis to stochastic modelbased analyses as well as systematic reviews of health economic evaluations.
My focus is quantitative analysis, given my background in public health and in health economics. Public health has given me skills within study design and outcome evaluations while health economics has contributed practical epidemiological skills and stochastic health economic modelling methods.
